First Look: BlackBerry Curve 9350 (Sprint)

1:38 /

For those who seek an affordable and entry-level BlackBerry, the BlackBerry Curve 9350 is the way to go.

I'm Nicole Lee, Senior Associate Editor for CNET.com, and this is a first look at the RIM BlackBerry Curve 9350 for Sprint Nextel. The Curve 9350 is Sprint's entry level BlackBerry offering. It has a very slim and compact form factors, around 10 millimeters thick. On the front of the BlackBerry Curve is a 2.4-inch display right here. It has a 360 x 480 pixel resolution. The Curve 9350 is used with BlackBerry 7 OS, which is the latest version of the BlackBerry operating system. Underneath that, you get the Curve's usual BlackBerry keyboard. As you can see here, it's nice and compact, but the keys are raised above the surface. On the back is a 5-megapixel camera and LED flash. As we said before, the Curve 9350 is used with BlackBerry 7 OS. This gives it a much faster and more intuitive user experience. The browser has HTML5, for example. It also has support for NFC that lets you make Google payments just by passing the phone over a compatible NFC system. The BlackBerry Curve 9350 is very affordable at only around $49.95 of the new 2-year service agreement with Sprint Nextel. I'm Nicole Lee, and this has been the first look at the BlackBerry Curve 9350 for Sprint.
